"Recruiting is going good with Arizona State," said the 6-5 290 Armond Armstead. "(running backs) Coach Jamie Christian is recruiting me and I like him. I really like the program, I like that it's in the Pac-10, and I want to visit the school and learn more about it…I'm waiting for summer school to end and I will visit them the next couple of weeks."
Oregon, Arizona, Washington, USC, and Texas A&M make up the rest the list of schools Armstead will pick from. "Distance doesn't matter to me," he claimed. "Wherever I'm comfortable with that's' where I'll play."

He cites his athleticism as his prominent skill. "I can use my strength against someone smaller than me, or my speed against a bigger player," he noted. "But I can always get stronger and faster."
USC and Washington are the schools that Armstead has already paid a visit to. "I want to visit the rest of the six schools before July 30th, because that's when I plan to make my decision." he stated. "I'm looking to make my decision and end the (recruiting) process early."
